The MEDCYCLETOUR partners have recently signed a Charter for Sustainable and Responsible Tourism in the MED Area.
(Rome, 23 July 2020) Involving stakeholders across the Mediterranean region in the development of cycling tourism and EuroVelo 8 – Mediterranean Route, the Charter for Sustainable and Responsible Tourism in the MED Area has just been signed by the MEDCYCLETOUR partners, a project part of the Sustainable Tourism Community.
The objectives of this charter are diverse. First, it will serve as a tool to transfer the knowledge accumulated during the project which is using the EuroVelo 8 route as a tool to influence regional and national policies in favor of sustainable and responsible tourism, providing transnational solutions in coastal areas across the Mediterranean.
Secondly, it will contribute to the economic sustainability of destinations, building attractive, safe, direct and comfortable European, national, regional and local cycle routes, developing more dedicated services to cater for the increasing numbers of cycling tourists coming to the MED area and promoting the image of cycling and cycling tourism and the positioning of the Mediterranean region as a cycling tourism destination.
Lastly, it will contribute to implementing actions to develop and promote cycling tourism in the MED area, exchanging know-how, expertise and best practices and to raise awareness and advocate for financial resources for developing cycling tourism at all levels of government.
Public or private stakeholder interested in joining the Charter for Sustainable and Responsible Tourism, can fill in this online form.
